How will we know our programs are working? Just as the effects of the changing climate are tangible, there are tangible ways that we can measure our efforts. We will track our progress at the company, customer and community level, and provide updates every six months. Please visit regularly to see how we are tracking toward our goals.

Eliminate nearly 100% of emissions from electricity use at our Edison Place and Benning Road facilities by the end of 2025
Emissions from building operations increased in 2020 compared to 2019 despite a reduction in building usage as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are various factors that could have affected this including our enhanced pandemic-related cleaning procedures, such as electrostatic cleaning. Analysis is ongoing to determine impacts and potential mitigative actions.
Reduce motor vehicle fleet emissions to less then 5,500 metric tons by the end of 2025
Emissions from other operations increased in 2020 compared to 2019 primarily driven by fleet operations. As a protective measure related to employee health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, vehicle sharing was restricted resulting in an increase in the number of fleet vehicles on the road.
Convert 100% of our substation lighting (indoor and outdoor) to high efficiency LED lighting fixtures by end of 2025
Convert 100% of our office lighting to high efficiency LED lighting fixtures by end of 2025
